For more than 20 years I have studied New Orleans through the lens of my camera. During that time, I have learned to appreciate her nuances, forgive her faults, relish the beauty of her architecture, savor the uniqueness of her culinary and musical heritage. With each click of the camera I treasure this place a little more. These are my thoughts in words and pictures.

Louisiana Culture: Lighting The Way for Santa With an Alligator Bonfire

Alligator shaped bonfire lights the way for Santa in Garyville, Louisiana on December 24, 2019. photo by Kathy AndersonWhen I read about the 78-foot alligator bonfire that was built in Garyville, Louisiana, I insisted that our family see it. Christmas Eve bonfires are part of a tradition that Cajuns like to call “lighting a way for Papa Noel.” Hundreds gathered for the lighting and cheered as the alligator lit up the night. Have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!!
